good info. however.the break demonstrated for the dual-tie method doesn’t work if you’ve been restrained arms behind the back, and then the cuff itself zip-tied (3 ties total) to the belt loop at 6 o’clock on your pants. not through one of the two ties around your wrists, but an open tie run through the belt loop and through the eyelet formed by your arms/shoulders and the cuff. you can’t jump through it without also getting your pants off. if you’re wearing a belt and boots, you’re stuck also doesn’t work on LEO/tactical zipcuffs, which are built completely differently and have already addressed the issue.
